“Mr. President, your election is far larger than the United States.”
COP 15 — 12/8/2009
In the video below, Odyssey Networks Mark Dowd interviews three religious leaders at the Copenhagen summit on climate change and asks them to give 30 seconds of advice to President Barack Obama. The first is heretical, and now, borderline anti-American, Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister…
Chittister: Mr. President, you were not elected to save the past. What made America great in energy is both scarce and dangerous now, it’s gone, it’s deadly, and it’s over. Begin alternative energy systems immediately in the United States. Lead now.
Dowd: Okay, that was 30 seconds. But, if you had 15 seconds more with President Obama, knowing that he is a religious man, what message would you say from a Christian prespective?
Chittister: Mr. President, your election is far larger than the United States. You have a moral obligation to the rest of this world. You (sic), nobody goes to heaven without tears in their eyes. Cry for those that have been harmed by the game we’re playing with energy, and save them too.
